paying amazon to record all your conversations.people will buy anything.


As opposed to having a private conversation on a public forum.... Oh wait.
firstly, Amazon Alexa is ALWAYS listening. How else would it know when you use the wake command?

secondly, Amazon always keep your audio recordings even if you try to delete it locally from your account.

you might not care or want to hear it. you might not think it's a big deal, you might not think it's that bad. you might not think they are invading people's privacy as much as it sounds.

whatever. i just think people should know.

people don't expect that Amazon will listen, record everything they say then store it forever. but everyone knows this is a public forum.

that's the difference.

Pretty sure you have zero source that it "records everything they say" and "stores it forever".

Of course it uploads commands when prompted with the 'wake word', but l don't tend to have intimate conversations with it. Not sure what they can do with a recording of me setting a kitchen alarm.
Please don’t laugh I’m a novice at these things , does an echo dot have to stay plugged in or does it have a rechargeable battery

Natively it’s required to be constantly on, so plugged to the mains.

I think there are some third party products where you can use it on the go, but to be honest, it’s designed to be set down in a room and left there.

For this price, it’s literally a no brainier.

I’ve got 4 in the house, 1 Spare (got a ridiculously cheap deal a few months back) and should we move into a larger house, I’d get for every room.

For music (need a decent subscription, Amazon music unlimited is what I use), weather updates, news, radio, alarms/reminders etc. it’s just a fantastic device.

Highly highly recommended!

Once set up (tutorials online/YouTube) and in the instructions, it’s very easy to use.

Might be worth you setting it up for him, with a little mobile phone/app knowledge, it’s a breeze to use for anyone

Your dad will need to have wifi. You could do the set up from your phone/tablet. It's very simple to use, as voice controlled commands. No need for Amazon Prime, and from what you say I magine your dad, like myself, would get little use out of any of it's benefits.
Brill advice and thanks

He could 'drop in' on his dad with the dot
Possible to get this price but with two different colour dots?

Good question but I don’t think so...
I guess you could try adding individual items to the basket and see what happens in the checkout...

I'm not disagreeing with that at all - just that your first post said "record everything they say then store it forever". Whereas it should have said "record everything they say, dispose of anything it doesn't believe contains the wake word without uploading it anywhere, then store what's left". There's an absolutely huge difference between the two.

I do think there’s things you can use which will enable you to use it without being plugged in, but they’re expensive (compared to this price) and I would personally recommend getting a cheap Bluetooth speak for the bathroom and syncing it with your mobile, then you can play music or radio broadcasts while in the shower etc.
That’s what I do

People do know, it was all over newspapers at one point, including the independent which you just linked.

Do you not have a phone? Do you really think the networks n phone company's haven't been recording and listening to calls etc for years? Or do you wear a tin foil hat?
Will someone in the know please help. Am a novice to this amazon echo (only use UE Boom) but want to get one now. Am so confused as to which one is best. Is it the echo 2nd Gen, Echo plus 2nd Gen or is the echo dot 3rd Gen better (perhaps because it’s 3rd Gen)? Any directions will be greatly appreciated please. Thank you.

I assume you don't have a mobile phone then because they have the exact same functionalities of these. Google is always listening, tracking everywhere you go and everything that you do.

Alexa is the least of your worries mate.

I’m pretty sure Google doesn’t activate the microphone on your mobile and listen to your conversations at all times.

Some examples:
For hard to reach sockets - i.e. Christmas tree lights - you can even set the timer so the Christmas tree lights come on before you get home and go off as you go to bed - something to think about now we are in summer

To set timers on your TV etc - a lot of people have the habit of leaving TVs on in standby these days (rather than turning off at the socket) - so I have mine set up to turn on only during my normal hours at home, so the TV is completely powered off at night and when I'm in work rather than just in standby. and of course if I'm out of that routine then I can still turn on/off though the app (or via Alexa). Although the smart plug uses energy all the time I should be saving energy on the TV not being in standby all the time (plus the smart box, blu ray player etc).

To set a timer for say an electric heater. I have no central heating in the conservatory so in the winter months I set the timer for an electric fireplace to heat up the room half an hour before I wake up
